Sorry for putting the kicks in your face, but after all the walking, my “dawgs were talking.” Fresh off the Vans Warped Tour 2008, with a little time to reflect. Much love and respect to the “DTR45 Crew” for hitting the road and making it fun, memorable and tolerable. There’s nothing worse than traveling or hanging with a bunch of clowns for an extended amount of time. So I thank the intelligent minds that traveled along.
Thanks Yall! :DJ LoPro (Mr. Blame it on me. It’s cool!), A1 (Mr. Where in the world is A1?), Sean Harwell (Mr. I Can Sell an iPod to Steve Jobs) and T1X (Mr. Passing in the Right Lane is Illegal).
Buffalo, Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, and Indianapolis were incredibly “HOT.” I’m not using “hot” as a slang word for “great time, dope, fun or exciting…I’m talking 95 degrees with humidity Hot! But to be clear, despite the heat, we met good people and had great time!
The days went pretty much like this:
Check-in time: 10am or earlier to find out what time our performance was going to be.
Sharpies: We wrote what the performance time on small flyers and canvased the parks hitting anyone who “looked” like they knew what hip-hop was
Hustle: Pushed Cd’s and tees all day and networked
Show: Performed. Do the daayumm thang!!
Post-Show: Mo’ and Mo’ Hustling. Sean was top seller by far. Killin’ em!
A mighty Thank You again to all of the locals who came out to show support at the Darien Lake show. Congrats to Drew and Mike (contest winners) for not only “knowing their hip hop” but for being able to take a day off work and hopefully found some time to enjoy the festivities.
Lastly, Peace to the Entire Skull Candy crew, Add.verse, Othello, Dante, Pirate Signal, Joel, Two Mics and a Kick, Twilight Sentinels, DJ TopSpeed for the heavy rotation, Geoff with GFist (great hook-up homie), and ummm a whole lot of others. Oh yeah, Kyle and Kurt…Hope to talk with you guys soon.
